Unfortunately it is very hard to get the silicone off and nothing will stick to it.
Once you have gone down this road, it is tough to turn around.

Depends on how much I guess, and if what you have is leaking.
There are always options; some pretty extreme.

Pictures of the area would be helpful.

I agree on the EternaBond. Just finished applying the tape to all caulking on the roof while the caulk was still new. Shouldn't have to worry about re-caulking the roof anymore. This is the best preventative measure in my book.

Try wiping with Acetone or other quick evaporating solvent, alcohol may work but not sure, then apply a sealant like Dicor or Proflex. Dicor and Proflex has enough petroleum distillates to allow them to penetrate surfaces and adhere. Watch closely to make sure it does not come loose over time. Good Luck.

The application list does not list rubber or EDPM roof material.

I have attached a pic of one area I have. I have a ROO and need to seal the bunk end frames really well. The bunk pictured is being replace. But I need to go thru and clean all the silicone I put down in an effort to seal it. I was told by Dave Arbogast RV service just use Silicone, that is what we use. I think I was fed horrible info.

So I need to go and clean everything real good, and seal with a good sealant. What is recommended by all.

Please advise.

I have used this on a exterior shower to remove silicone and it worked quite well:
